In a recording career that spans three decades and 24 albums, Grammy® Award-winning saxophonist Kenny G has grafted elements of R&B, Pop and Latin music to a jazz foundation, solidifying his reputation as the premier artist in contemporary jazz. Since the early 80s, his combination of unparalleled instrumental chops and indelible melodies has resulted in sales of more than 75 million records worldwide and more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz chart.
Inspired by the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire and Grover Washington Jr., Kenny was only 17 when he landed a gig with Barry White in 1973. In 1982, he landed a record deal with Arista and launched a solo career with three critically acclaimed jazz albums – Kenny G, G-Force and Gravity.
By the 90s, Kenny was a multi-platinum seller and a frequent collaborator with some of the most iconic figures in American popular music, including Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Natalie Cole, and Frank Sinatra. His subsequent studio albums, Silhouette and Breathless, were hugely successful, the latter selling more than 12 million records in the U.S. alone and spawning the Grammy®-winning single, “Forever in Love.”
